Pros: Let me start off by saying if you game at 1080p 60hz you need this card.
+Powerful for a 960, even compared to a friends Gigabyte 960 G1
+Back-plate and Thermal Shroud is very stylish. Possibly the best looking 960 in my opinion
+Super low TDP
+Misc features that we've come to expect with other 900 series cards, over-clocking utility, zero RPM fan, etc.
Cons: Aesthetically this is a nice card however, cooling performance wise its not the best. I don't think its worth knocking off an egg though, this is a compact card and its unfair to compare this to a G1 or DC2 cooler.
(I normally see temps cap off at about 64c on my open air test bench, i'm sure it would get hotter in a case.)
While not a physical con, the overclocking utility is a bit gimmicky, it is useable but MSI's Afterburner and ASUS' GPU tweak are much better -1 egg. If you are going to overclock use a different program.
Other Thoughts: I picked up an open box for about $160ish for my wife's computer. Its way overkill for her needs and I'm honestly a little jealous of her rig. At 1080p it maxes every game out at a solid 60fps at stock speed.

This review is from: APEVIA CF8SL-BGN 80mm Green LED Case Fan w/Grill
Pros: As i said earlier, i Really want to like these fans. However, i don't think its in the stars for me to own a working pair.
Cons: After RMA'ing the first two fans, and waiting a few weeks for a turnaround, the replacements arrived in another bubble wrap envelop, Broken...
Other Thoughts: Just stay away from these fans folks. I only needed 2 fans, I've waited over a month from the point of ordering the first pair, returning them, and receiving another broken pair.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: RAZER Naga USB MMO Gaming Mouse - Right-Handed Edition
Pros: Let me start of by saying this is the only mouse that I've had that fits my hand well.
- Large (i have robust hands)
- Extravagantly customizable buttons
- Very high DPI for this kind of mouse.
- Thumb buttons easy to recognize and use, (7-12 are a little difficult to reach if you have meaty thumbs like me)
Cons: I couldn't be happier with this mouse, however the size could be an issue with smaller hands.
- Cost, yes it has mechanical keys, and its a nice mouse, but its still a little high up there considering the alternatives.
- Not an issue for me, however, it's one of those "you can have it any color as long as its green" products.
Other Thoughts: It should also be noted that the Razer Synapses software is actually quite nice if you have more than one Razer product.READ FULL REVIEW
